How To Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Recipe
To begin with, wash your strawberries. Pat them dry keeping the stork intact.
Chop up your chocolate into smallish pieces, this will ensure that it melts correctly. Melt chocolate in batches over a double boiler. A bowl over a saucepan will work perfectly.
If you use a microwave, melt chocolate in 30-second bursts using half power. You will need to stir between.
Place the strawberry on a toothpick or skewer or use your fingers. Lower into the chocolate and dip until sufficiently covered.
If you would like to decorate your strawberries, you can add sanding sugar, toasted coconut, chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc. Add the decorations while the chocolate is still wet.
Place your strawberries on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. If you want to add a contrasting color, use a piping bag to pipe stripes or shapes over the part of the strawberry that is dipped in chocolate.
